Celebrating Sporting Achievements
We had a special assembly this morning to celebrate those pupils who have worked hard in their sporting endeavours to achieve notable results in their respective sports.
Firstly, some children went to the National Tennis Centre at Roehampton and had the chance to play and improve their skills at tennis. They each received a certificate to mark their efforts.
Next we marked the success of our team who went to the PPSA District Sports Competition. Everyone who took part received a special relay baton and some received certificates as they were runners up in their events.
Finally we celebrated the achievements of our pupils on sports day. Every pupil was scored at last week’s sports day and the three best boys and girls in each class received a bronze, silver or gold medal at today’s assembly.
Many congratulations to everyone!
Summer Reading Challenge!
The Challenge is run in public libraries, in the summer holidays, and is free for children to take part.
The Summer Reading Challenge is inclusive of all children and families and all stages of reading development. Children choose whatever they want to borrow. There are no levels.
- Children read six or more books of their choice: fiction, non-fiction, joke books, picture books; any books they like as long as they are borrowed from the library. They talk about them in the library with a member of staff or young volunteer and receive rewards along the way and a medal and/or certificate when they complete the Challenge.
- There is also a mini-challenge for pre-school children so that the whole family can take part.
- Family information leaflets are available in a range of community languages and many items are available in large print. Ask your local library staff.
- Libraries stock accessible texts, audio books, dual – language books, picture books and graphic novels.
- Most libraries in England and Wales will start the Challenge on Saturday 15 July 2017.
- There is not an official end date for the Challenge. Each library authority will set their own finish date. Please check with your local library to find out when the Challenge will finish in your area.
